In what sometimes feels like another life, this was the sort of quilt I was focused on making - traditional designs using reproduction fabrics. I still love the look of these, love pulling one over me in the evenings, still have yards of reproduction fabric if I ever get the yen to make more. They are generally less stressful for me to work on so I keep the fabric and the design ideas in case I want a break...or need a gift...or even let my art quilting take a turn to include a bit of them. This is the one I mentioned needed broken quilting stitches mended and it is now all better.
So with that out of the way, I ponder what to work on this week, as I do seem to want to start on something new - a beading project or another "Rochester" inspired design. But dang...last week this thing popped into my head during yoga class, a simple idea that could have so many variations to it. "Go away!" I want to tell it. "I have two good ideas already in the queue..." And the more I look at it, the more I recognize its links to my traditional quilting roots. Well, we'll see who wins.
